This is some kind of new 360 thing.

Or should I call it Mii60?

Look for yourself.

Nintendo Mii's - badly animated avatars for use in games, in a decently original idea that added sod all really, as you could only use them in stuff like Wii Sports.

360 avatars - a well animated, but blatant rip off of the nintendo version, for absolutely no point what so ever.

Nintendo's response - "Funny they have the higher end system, yet have to rip us off ha ha"

A whole lot of pointless by MS. They won't touch the Wii for popularity, but the Wii is not even in the same league. Its stupid and unneeded.

Its like trying to be better than a tennis player with a golf player. Totally different systems :

Meh, console wars used to be cool, now they're just boring...we want Sega vs Nintendo again.

They couldn't make them more like Miis if they tried. And it looks like they tried their utmost.

I just don't see the point. But Nintendo's response is amusing

Yeah this is in the latest update to the 360. It's overall a nice update, even if it takes some getting used to, but the Mii60s are quiet unneeded, really.

Am I the only person here that actually likes these avatars? :P

I think they're great! I couldn't care less if they've ripped off Nintendo, which they clearly have, but it doesn't really matter to me, I love 'em.

There are more options that you can do with the 360 Avatar's, than you could ever do with the Mii's, that, and they look a hellofa lot better.

And I don't think that Avatars like that are a new development either...like, I knew a couple of places where you could get the exact same damned thing and it was a virtual chat room with them...

Yeah, I think I've seen them, and ironically I think they were called "Meez".
